Pentium-4, Debian (with kernel-2.6.9)...that's my baby ^^
I tested the following USB1.1 devices in Debian Sarge (2.6.9 - self
compiled), equipped with a DiBcom 3000-MB:
1. I've heard about the outstanding performance of Dibcom demodulator
and found lots devices supported in dvb-kernel listed in the papers. Can
anyone tell me which product have been successfully installed in your PC
(better as same as mine in Debian) and worked fine? Thanks.
- TwinhanDTV USB-Ter DVB-T Device (VP7041)
- KWorld V-Stream XPERT DTV DVB-T USB
- DiBcom reference design
Others told me, that the
- TwinhanDTV Magic Box (VP7041e)
- Artec T1 USB TVBOX
are also working.
It seems to me, and to the one who used the MagicBox, that the reception
ability of those two boxes is limited. A direct comparisson of USB-Ter and
KWorld USB Boxes with the antenna in the same position was very
Scanning with the Kworld shows up all channels, Twinhan only
found the half of the available channels (strongest frequencies). Same
with the MagicBox. But I also heard, that there is a newer revision of the
MagicBox, which had the same qualitiy as the Kworld.
The USB2.0 part of the driver isn't running completely yet, but will be
soon, hopefully (using the DiBcom 3000P/MC demod). I would recommend to
buy a USB2.0 device. I don't know if Kworld updated their device to USB2.0
Artec would be an option as well for USB2.0 .
Twinhan has the MagicBox II (don't have the confirmation yet, that they
use the dib3000p as demod for this device). They say, it is only
available in Australia, but since you are in Taiwan, maybe you will by
able to get one.
